I would play him at linebacker. Use him like the redskins use crave and the cardinals use buchannon. His speed and cover skills can eliminate the mid match that some running backs out the back field and tight ends create. If you seen him st the combine he looks solid and probably could add some more lean mass to his frame without sacrificing any speed or quickness.
With all that said I still wouldn't draft him at #20 and its very doubtful he makes it to our #2.
The only time RBs out of the backfield gave our Defense problems was the ATL game....great game plan by Kyle Shanahan to expose our Defense. Corey Nelson has shown he is a pretty impressive cover LB.
It's always been BPA .............. AT A POSITION OF NEED. At least, that's been my observation.
And then that is further refined by John Elway's parameters of value. QB is #1, followed by Left Tackle, Pass-Rusher, and Cornerback. And then it depends on what's available in a particular Draft. For instance, the QBs aren't very good this year. And there aren't many "starting-quality" Left Tackles . And there does appear to be a plethora of CBs, this year.
It's hard to guess without seeing the Broncos "Big Board". But, I'm guessing we will go for the "skill position" player that costs a lot when their rookie Contracts are up. For me, those "high-priced" players include "Cornerback" and "Pass Rusher".
Are we talking actual BPA or everyone's obsession with wasting the #20 on converting a running back into a receiver?
BPA will probably still be our biggest need which is LT. The draft is deep at D-line and TE and we could probably find the same level of talent at ILB in the 2nd unless foster is there at #20.
The only way we don't take one is if the eagles or ravens pick one before us and another team leap frogs us to take another. A few other teams might reach for a QB instead of waiting. That could push a top 10 prospect or two into our laps that would be BPA.
